This is an easy pattern to follow. I decided today I needed a basket for my kitchen cleaning items to go in, since they are scattered all over the counter right now. I think I will try this basket and see how it works out. I think it would work well, because I could also maybe wash it if it gets dirty or smelly, which tends to happen in the kitchen.

I like that this basket was crocheted with chunky yarn. Chunky yarn will make this a lot more durable in the long run. You also have to consider the objects you use the basket for. Thank you for the free pattern.

This basket looks like something I could use in my crafting room to hold many of my paper craft supplies! Of course I'll need several. I think I'll need to be deciding on a color theme for my room so I can choose my yarn. I might just go with something like white or natural so that the colorful paper supplies will be my color palette! Thanks for the pattern!

Baskets have always been a favorite thing for me and I especially love hand made ones and the pattern of this one is very nice. I will be making mine a bit deeper because of what I want to use it for but that will be easy to do. I always use a cotton string type yarn for baskets so that they keep their shape and turning over the top of the basket helps a lot to give strength to the sides and keep the shape of the basket.

I just simply love baskets. I have a zillion of them in every room of my home.There function is from holding crochet items to mail. This basket is perfect for the remote controls on the coffee table. It uses so little yarn, I just make more than one or two.

This is a cute crocheted basket. The directions are simple, including attaching the base to the sides of the basket. I would use a kitchen cotton yarn as it would make a more sturdy basket because it isn't a soft yarn. A variegated color would also look great for this basket. If you crochet loosely, go down a hook size or two to make tighter stitches.

Cute! Just wondering, do you have to put some sort of stiffener or spray starch on this basket to keep it from collapsing or does that depend on the weight of yarn that you use? Also, does putting lots of little items in the basket make the sides fall over?

Even the coarse yarns will soften and lose shape over time. A stiffener would help slow this down. I like to use jute or twine for crocheting baskets. You can use it by itself, or with your yarn to add bulk. Jute can be hard on your hands, but I love the added strength it provides.

It just fits around an icecream carton and the top folds inwards .I still am thinking ,do I glue down or ??Makes a great recycled item .

Simple and easy to follow crochet pattern. Thanks for such a great pattern.

I've been looking for a simple and easy pattern for a basket. I am wondering if this can be done to be about the size of a small storage or moving crate/box. I received a lot of yarn for Christmas and am currently storing them in beach bags. Has anyone tried to make this in a larger size and if so how big did the final basket measure? Thanks in advance for any information tips or thoughts given.

I made this a while back with worsted. Size turned out to be 9 X 5 X 4 with the top turned down. Sort of floppy. To do it again I would use cotton for a sturdier basket. Doesn't hold much in the way of a stash but cute for small items.

Hi. If you want it to make the sides/bottom stiffer, try crocheting on rope. The basket would turn out stiff and strong.

I'm confused - yarn weight 4 or Softee Chunky, which is weight 6? Big difference! How sturdy is it?

Malm- Judging by the gauge, I'm going to guess you should be using a 6 (super bulky) weight yarn for this pattern.

I love this to pieces - and I have some spare yarn may I post back later to let you know how it went

Ana Mara, I think RS means right side!

It's an amazing basket! i can't wait to try making it. I've got some difficukty figuring out the meaning of the abbreviations RS,beg. Can you help me? Thxs a lot.

love and adore it, so useful
